Taste the diffidence
As it happens Manzoor did stick up for Morrissey around the time of the NME furore (reprise), siding with him against Jonze and that skidmark of an editor whose name escapes me momentarily.
Fair enough, thanks for the correction. I still think his piece reflects the standard "accepted narrative" for journalists who write about Morrissey. His alleged racism, debunked or not, shouldn't be part of the conversation in the first place.
